Fever shake summer buzz full moon intoxication

My knees are weak
but my arms are strong
the sun is low
but the night is long

I'll give it to ya
hum hallelujah

My back is broke
but it isn't bent
pose all you want
I'll be Clark Kent

I'll give it to ya
moan hallelujah

The moon's just a second hand sun
recited words from a non sentient tongue
but what's mine is yours
so kick in all doors
'cause we're old enough to be young

Let's go Skinny dipping
in this conservative lake
source of fountains of wine
though obscured by a snake

The moon's just a second hand sun
reflecting a pale distorted quote
the shadow of a ghost
stale talkshow host
but I want to end it on a good note
